Raman spectroscopy is very powerful technique on account of its intrinsically high molecular specificity, the requirement for minimal or no sample pre-treatment, the ability to measure in water, the flexibility of sampling configurations, and suitability for automation. Furthermore, Raman technology is non-destructive, non-contact, label-free, fast and robust way for measurement, making the use of technique very convenient and easy.
However, Raman spectrometry has not traditionally been the optimal technique for analyzing highly fluorescent materials. The PicoRaman spectrometer broadens the application areas of Raman spectroscopy to the next level. Using patented time-gated technology, PicoRaman spectrometer allows for making the most out of Raman spectroscopy, with new applications in the fields of science and industry. PicoRaman is the only commercial Raman spectrometer capable of time-resolved measurements.
Fluorescence emission is seen as the main challenge in Raman spectroscopy. The patented, Timegated® technology solves this problem. PicoRaman has a sub-nanosecond pulsed excitation and time-resolved single-photon counting detector, enabling effective, real fluorescence rejection from Raman signal and making both quantitative and qualitative analysis more accurate and reliable. Spectral analysis becomes more specific and precise as fluorescence is no longer a limitation.
PicoRaman opens up new possibilities for research and development e.g. in catalysis, metallurgy and combustion studies. It is the only commercial Raman spectrometer using time-resolved technology, providing data on Raman scattering and time-resolved fluorescence. The advantages of conventional Raman spectroscopy are available with PicoRaman. Additionally, PicoRaman is immune to ambient light, and it enables measurements in high temperatures without having to account for fluorescence. Efficient data acquisition is accessible for wider range of applications than before.
Aside from data on Raman scattering, PicoRaman provides time-resolved information on fluorescence emission decay. The time-gating technology enabling this has its first commercial application in PicoRaman instrument.
PicoRaman consists of the spectrometer, laser, sampling optics, PC with NI I/O card and software. Fitting to a laboratory table, the instrument is compact in size and even easy to transport closer to the sample collection site. Timegate experts help you to choose the right measurement probe for your research purposes.
Fluorescence has traditionally limited the use of Raman spectroscopy for analysis of certain materials. PicoRaman spectrometer utilizes patented time-gated technology that broadens the benefits of Raman scattering analysis also to materials of high fluorescent emission, and the requirement for less sample preparation also saves time and labour.
PicoRaman spectrometer allows for analysis of a wide range of compounds in various physicochemical environments and temperatures. PicoRaman uses patented Raman technology, providing data on Raman scattering and time-resolved fluorescence.
Time-resolved Raman spectroscopy has not been commercially available until now. PicoRaman is the new tool for accurate analysis for mining industry, fundamental chemical research, pharmaceutical settings, process analytical technology (PAT) and life sciences. PicoRaman instrument helps you to improve your production quality and reliability.
